Joe Bryan has undergone a medical and looks set to join Aston Villa in the next few hours, Sky Sports News understands.

Villa manager Steve Bruce has reportedly fought off interest from a number of Championship clubs for the Bristol City defender.

The fee for the 24-year-old is thought to be in the region of £5m.

Bryan made 48 appearances in all competitions last season and was involved in Bristol City's season-opening 1-1 draw at home to Nottingham Forest on Saturday.
